Welcome to Iron Strong Jewelry! This is how we came to be....

Iron Strong is an evolved labor of love.  A change of careers, a finding of one's path, becoming iron strong in body and spirit...that is what my jewelry is about. I was a jewelry designer for many years, 15 to be exact. At one point, I owned three boutiques in New York City where I sold only my designs.  My inner fire was doused by the 2008 economic downturn that heavily affected my business for the years following. I shut the doors of my flagship and first store, Tina Tang Studio in 2010.  I stopped everything by 2012. I felt like I failed.  Even when friends tried to point out that I successfully ran a business for nearly 15 years, I felt like the end result, a closed business, was my final report card grade. In 2012, I started learning about personal training since I have always had fitness entwined in my daily life.  Suddenly and unplanned, I became a personal trainer at Equinox on 19th Street in New York City.  I learned more about exercise, the body, and different methods to create strength.  It was here, Tina got her Tang back.  I found my love for barbells, kettlebells, and re-ignited my love for design.   Tina tang, Kettlebells, iron strong jewelry
